D-ar Mr. Smith-I have thor-
oughly enjoyed reading the letters
from servicemen in The Star, and
now I will put in my "two-bits."
There is a great deal of difference
in writing from a ship and a home
base. Here, what we can write is
, My ship is a P. C., the larger of
two types of subchasers. Our es-
sentia: duty is to ur.olect larger
ships fLom submarines. My indi-
vidual job is to pick up the sound
of any enemy subs around and
give such information on the loca-
tion and movement that a success-
ful attack might be made.
In the past few months this ship
has been stationed in. home wa-
ters, and during this time we have
had .some interesting trips while
convoying larger ships in training.
We have been through the com-
plete procedure of bombarding the
coast and islands, the landing of
troops and the removal of troops.
We learned how to care for ,our-
selves when in battle, with battle-
ships, cruisers, etc., and especially-
in attacking.enemy' subs. We have
been attacked by friendly bombers
and' torpedo planes, and we have
dodged torpedoes from friendly
subs and, destroyers. In fact, we
have received the most training
possible for all phases of sea war-
fare. We have worked with all
types .of larger men-of-war and
planes and are now ready for any-
thing that might come up in the

Marshal Badoglio's government and Pope
Pius cannot escape responsibility and stop air
raids on Rome by merely calling it an open

In regard to this redistricting proposal,
people in the north end of the county would

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE, GULF COUNTY, FLORIDA
WHILE ROME BURNS
If high military men began bickering over
how the war should be run and accusing each
other of incompetence, it wouldn't be long
before something was done. Public indigna-
tion would force correction.
The men responsible for food production
and distribution are as vital to the war ef-
fort as the military men. After the war, the
food command will exceed the military com-
mand in importance. And yet the country is
standing by while disruptive influences ot
chaotic proportions tear apart a high war
agency dealing with food-the OPA.
,',:sig0ci OPA general manager, Lou
Maxon, says: "In my estimation there still is
no realistic workable over-all food program.
Operation in this vital field has been strictly
catch-as-catch can, and OPA moves have of-
ten been directed by expediency rather than
by any long distance future planning. -
The idea of OPA planning and executing any
food program without utilizing to the fullest
extent the knowledge and the complete co-
operation 'of the food administrator's people
and agriculture is just plain nonsense."
Which reminds us .that that onion we man-
aged to buy in Tallahassee last Saturday must
be turned over immediately to Jeweler Wilks
for gold-plating--we're going. to have it
mounted in a stickpin.
A TIP FROM MUSSOLINI
With much jumping up on their hind legs
to rant and roar, ,it is becoming increasingly
obvious that aspiring holders of public office
are going to seek renewed tenure on the
strength of their war records. We don't ob-
ject to that, but what we do object to is the
tendency to glorify themselves by intimating
that they have fought the war almost single-
handed-even to the extent of being primarily
responsible for the quantity and quality of
tanks, planes and ships with which our men
are fighting. That is the way of the dictators,
to seize all the credit from private citizens
for every achievement.
Therefore it is imperative that we be not.
deluded as to how and by. whom this war is
being fought. Due credit should be given to
the political and military leaders who are co-
ordinating and directing the armed forces.
Beyond that, the credit goes to the people for
whatever degree of military success the na-
tion may enjoy. \
From the men deep underground in the
mines to the men and women in the front o0-
fices, the job is being done by sweating in-
dividuals who are working) for the glory oi
freedom, not the glorification of the poli-
Our political leaders should heed the igno-
minious end of the first dictator to fall in this
war Mussolini. He claimed the achieve-
ments of his people as 1-i- own. By so doing,
he brought defeat to 'i'-'-if and his nation.
WHO SAID SACRIFICE?
Our forefathers did without, sugar until
the 13th century, without coal fires uutil the
14th century, without buttered bread until
the 15th century, without potatoes until the
16th, without coffee, tea and soap until the
17th, without pudding until, the 18th, without

without canned goods uutil the 20th century,
